Sorry but my brother is a ship's navigator and he also sells automatic steerage and navigation systems for ships and boats and this sort of accident simply should not be happening in this day and age. Low visibility? RADAR! Heard of it? Serious negligence involved in this incident.

He will likely prove to be mentally fit enough to hang by the neck until he is dead too.

It's just a shame that the swans weren't with their young, (too early in the season), as I understand that parent birds can be extremely aggressive and can break a man's thigh with their wings. My suggestion is that these boys be put in a pen with a large, angry cob and its cygnets and that the police film them being savaged by the bird until they are unconscious. This method was used with dogs that attacked sheep. The dogs were placed in a pen with a ram, which proceeded to batter them up and down the place. The dogs never approached a sheep again!

Their new Cheese Katsu Burger is actually fairly tasty. Haven't tried their new Matcha Oreo Cookie MacFlurrie yet. Should I?

There must be easier ways to shuffle off this mortal coil!

He's right about Burma, so sad that these wonderful people are under the podgy thumbs of some real-life as*@#les. It's just a shame that it doesn't have vast oil reserves or else it would have been 'liberated' by Dubya ages ago.

'are people serious?? they don`t teach any of this at school here?' Don't mention the war, I did but I think I got away with it. The youth of Japan are misled about the war when they study it at school. If they want to know what a Nazi is, they should just look at their ruling party members.

'the simple 24 letter alphabet the West uses'

Is that the simplified version of the 26 letter alphabet I'm used to?

Have to agree with noborito on this one. If it was about quality of food, everyone would be heading for MOS or other, better quality joints, (still junk food, I know). Sheople will be conned by marketing and a pretty smile, ergo, huge marketing budget and pretty staff and bingo, you can sell a vein burger and mechanically reconstituted chicken nugget sh*t- bombs to many gullible people. The last I heard, (it was last year I think), MaccyD's was struggling to maintain sales and looking weak. It might have been due to the beef scares etc. but it should have een due to their continued sales of rubbish masquerading as 'food'.

SAS slinked out of Iraq in shame, As should all the foreign troops there.

if they didn't quit their own squadrons to take jobs as mercenaries or security experts. Not their fault really, the UK has chosen spend its tax monies not on maintaining an army that will protect them and their interests

So, that doesn't say anything about their abilities, just that they have been betrayed by their leaders, just as Dubya and his cronies betrayed the US public on 9/11 and then threw their children into an illegal war in Iraq.

but on dole payments to an army within which wants to destroy them. Don't understand that bit, sorry.

The French Foreign Legion fights bravely, in cartoons and in movies.

And in real life.

Who in their right mind would buy a double cheese burger instead of 2 cheese hamburgers it was more than 200 yen? (Japanese would... oops)

Or, after watching 'Supersize Me', who in their right mind would buy any of that foul muck masquerading as food AT ALL?

LOL. Who keeps the "free world" free?

Bwahahahahahahaha! Certainly not that moron Dubya. He and his bosses, (Rummy and Dick, 'I'll blow your face off' Cheney), have done their best to remove the rights of their own people and tried to keep them in terrified subservience to the GOP ever since they perpetrated 9/11. Yeah, we ALL know they instigated the war on terror with that wee blast and have ridden the shockwaves ever since. Time to topple the barstewards and get a human into the Whitehouse again. So Mr. Obama is young and not that experienced. You might also say that he isn't as cynical or corrupt as these old timer scum who were never qualified for office anyway. (What qualification has Dubya got for the job? He's an idiot for gawd's sake! He couldn't even run a company except into the ground!). What degree qualifies you for the presidency? Politicians can get to the top simply by knowing the right people and being rich enough to buy there way into the prime spot.

they are the best of the best in the world and can kick butt for sure in any corner of the globe.

In their own, narrow little minds, I'm sure that's true. The other elite forces of the world know that they rely too much on technology and their overzealous gung-ho attitude is just sad and pathetic. These types of highly trained operatives should be cool, calm and VERY professional, not a bunch of 'ass-kicking' louts who mistake themselves for heroes all the time. Bring on the SAS, SBS and the French Foreign Legion if you want to see true butt kickers who don't feel the need to constantly crow about themselves.

PS Get out of Iraq!

Posted in: Clinton, Obama duel ahead of Indiana, North Carolina primaries See in context

As pointed out above, Obama should be the ideal candidate being both black and white. I don't thing the red neck airian brotherhood nutters will see him in that light however and doubt if it would be long before he was assassinated, (sadly). If Hillary had half a brain, she would have backed Mr. Obama ages ago, ensuring a Democrat to be the next president and she would be VP, then, when some white supremacist offed the poor guy she could do a Lindon Johnson and step up as pres by default.

Posted in: Clinton, Obama duel ahead of Indiana, North Carolina primaries See in context

As a non US citizen, I have to say that I would like to see Obama take the presidency. The USA needs a new direction and fresh vision. Mrs. Clinton would be just another in a long line of same old same old. She is mainsream and unlikely to change much, i.e. she would stay in Iraq and attack any enemy of Israel, a major terrorist country. I guess Obama would have to support Israel to a certain extent, but he might use his brains to figure out that they need to be more controlled by their donor ally. Hillary was the first to start mud slinging and in my book that demeanes her and lowers her considerably in my estimation. How people can still flock to her banner with her appalling record is beyond me. Voting for her would be almost as bad as voting for Dubya or McCain.

Reminds me of the scene in Kagemusha when the musketeer described how he triangulated his gun on the spot where the enemy leader would sit and then shot him in the dark using a plumb bob and some pebbles to align his gun. Nice photo.

Yet another reason, (if any were needed), to avoid MaccyD's like the plague it is. I have to agree the young lady looks a bit too anorexic for a food ad, (using the term 'food' loosely, of course).

Challenging the law? How many people are packed on this boat? Also, broad horizontal view of pic will look more attractive.

Ehm, there are two boats in the picture. The wee people who seem to be in the middle of the boat are actually in a boat behind the main one. One effect of telephoto lenses is to compress distance so objects appear next to each other when in fact they are separated by some distance.
